Providing Video Footage

We would recommend providing a two-minute promo video with your entry, as this will help in the judging process. We may use some of the footage during the awards ceremony too, so this will give you a great opportunity to showcase your organisation.

However, we recognise that it may not be possible for everyone to create a video in time for the entry deadline on August 2nd.

So, for the following categories, it is not mandatory to supply a video:

Outstanding Leadership Award

Educational Institution

Technology Partner or Provider

Legal Services Supplier

QA and/or Localisation Provider

Recruitment Agency

Tax and Accountancy Firm

Technical Innovation

Services Provider

Education Initiative and Talent Development

Outstanding Individual Award

Commitment to ESG Award

Commitment to Workplace Wellbeing 

When supplying video, please note that we need a MOV/MP4 file of no more than 500MB.

The Written Entry

400 words isn’t a lot when you’re explaining why your game, your service or your organisation deserves to win the award, so be precise. Remember to check spelling and grammar in your submission.

Don’t Miss The Deadline!

The entry period closes at midnight on Friday August 2nd, so make sure you don’t miss it.

What’s Next?

Our panel of industry judges will decide on the shortlist, with the Finalists in each category being announced in September.

The judges will also choose the winners who will be revealed during our prestigious awards ceremony on the evening of November 28th.
